Description:
In what can be interpreted as a nod to the first modern American novel, Mark Twain’’’’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn , Riverman depicts a man hard at work, pushing a canoe along the river. With his back bathed in light, the man’’’’s face falls into shadow, turning him into an archetypal figure. Although the river and its navigator are both anonymous, the image serves as a depiction of the American South. Executed in 1920, this etching and aquatint is signed, from an edition of one hundred and fifty. With full margins, the work is matted, with the plate measuring 6 x 4 inches. Another work from this edition is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Extremely pale toning surrounding the image, otherwise in good condition with no evidence of tears or repairs. Frank Benson (American, 1862-1951) For a period of time, Frank Weston Benson was known as “America’’’’ s Most Medalled Painter,” for his academic accomplishments and widely received acclaim. Though his works included landscapes and portraiture, Benson believed his true subject was light, once saying, “I follow the light, where it comes from, where it goes.” His style was noted for its bright colors and broken brushwork. Benson came to exhibit with “the Ten”, a group of American Impressionists that included Childe Hassam, William Merrit Chase, and J. Alden Weir; he also became a leading figure in what became known as the Boston School of Painting. As a child, Benson dreamed of being an ornithological illustrator, and as an avid hunter and fisherman, frequently included sporting animals in his works. In addition to oil paintings, Benson also made etchings, watercolors, and murals.
